Get Help Winning the Benefits You Need
A thyroid disorder can alter your whole life.
Severe fatigue, weight fluctuations, heart issues and more can start to dominate your days. It’s bad enough to where you can’t work. But how will you pay your bills?
It’s why you need Social Security Disability benefits. The monthly checks provide crucial financial support when you need it most.
Unfortunately, it can be hard to win benefits. In fact, most are denied on their initial application.
At The Law Offices of Karen Kraus Bill, we know how difficult the process can be. If you’re anywhere in Mid-Missouri, we can guide you through it and, most importantly, give you the best chance to win the benefits you deserve.
Call us today to get started.
What Symptoms Qualify for Social Security Disability with a Thyroid Disorder?
While Social Security doesn’t have a listing for thyroid disorders, we’ve seen plenty of people still win. You’ll need to meet Social Security’s definition of “disabled”:
- Your health makes working impossible.
- You cannot switch to a different line of work.
- You won’t be able to work for at least a year or more.
Generally, thyroid disorders are separated into two different categories: hyperthyroidism (when your thyroid gland is overactive) and hypothyroidism (when your thyroid gland isn’t as active as it should be).
Some common symptoms we see qualify:
- Severe fatigue
- High blood pressure
- Drastic weight loss or gain
- Heart palpitations
We know this can be a stressful time.
We can answer any questions you have, and we’ll even evaluate your case at no charge to you.
How to Prove Your Case to Social Security
Remember how most people are denied? In order to win, you’ll need a mountain of supporting evidence making it unquestionably clear that you deserve benefits.
You’ll need to include things like:
- Doctor’s reports
- Hospital records
- Treatment details and results
- Supporting testimonials from coworkers, family, and friends
Our experienced staff can help you gather the materials you need and avoid common mistakes we see. We’ve helped people from Columbia and all over Missouri win benefits.
